NightmareMoon ..... just trying to pick your brain, as the poster might want to know as well:The Steeda dual rates are awesome for sport use but the ride frequency is bouncy on the street with cheaper adjustable shocks. You really want a good monotube shock to tame spring rates like these. I had instant regrets in daily use the first days after mounting them but I don’t really think about it anymore. On course, and paired with the right swaybars and camber, they’re amazing. I would do it again, but I was ready for an aggressively sporty ride. The minimal drop is perfect for handling.
What made you go to the dual rate ?
Way back in the early 2000's (dating myself here) I was using linear in ESP, but on a Camaro. My thought is that the dual would upset the your balance (unless you put alot of dependance on the shock) once you "hit" the rate change (so to speak) - but I've looked over some of your runs and you have what appears to be a very smooth but aggressive driving style (I drive this way myself) ........ so I am wanting to get clarity as to what helps provent this "shock" to the balance - are you using the shocks to "temper" the transition (as well as the bars) and that works better for you, or this car/chassis ?
Thanks for any input
